NEO’s technical picture
Looking technically, a sustainable move above $9.00 is needed to improve the short-term technical picture and unlock an upside potential for NEO bulls. The next hurdle comes at $9.15 ( the middle line of one-day) Bollinger Band. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on psychological $10.00 with the upper line of one-day Bollinger Band and SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) daily located around this level.
On the downside, a sustainable move below $8.30 (the lower line of one-day Bollinger Band) will bring NEO back towards critical $8.00. If it is broken, NEO/USD will move into the uncharted territory with the next focus as low as $3.70 (the lowest level touched on June 26).
